For an Excuse to Hold Hands

If you’re looking for a good reason to keep your sweetie by your side, head over for a romantic ice skating session at Canal Park.  For $26, you and your valentine can both rent ice skates and skate to your heart’s content, side by side.  Once you’re both tired out, cozy up to the bar at Park Tavern and warm up with a hot spiced apple cider.


For the Beer Lover

If you and your sweetheart appreciate the fine art of craft beer-making, head over to Blue Jacket for a unique dining experience.  For the full effect, take one of the mid-day tours of the brewery (come early, it’s first come first served) followed by a complementary tasting.  Next, belly up to the bar for some snacks (try the fresh baked pretzels, homemade tater tots and the pickle pot) or grab a table and pair your beer of choice with their Bahn Mi Burger mash-up or the PLT (that’s a BLT with Porchetta).


For the Adventure Seeker
